Nollywood actor Damilola Ogunsin has recounted how a movie director once told him that he could not be an actor because he is an albino.



The prolific thespian narrated this in a recent interview with Hip TV, revealing some of his major challenges in the movie industry.

Ogunsin said, “When I was coming into Nollywood, I had a major director, whose name I will not mention. He looked at me and said, ‘Why do you want to be an actor? How many albinos do you find as actors? It’s not a place for you to be.’
“I have been doing theater since primary school. I have been in the theater group in my primary school, secondary school, my church, in my polytechnic in Ibadan, in the University of Lagos, and everywhere.”
The ‘Gold Fish’, as he is fondly called, said he has always been passionate about theater, stressing that he doesn’t think his “beautiful skin” is what is stopping him from achieving his dreams.
He said his determination to become an actor made him resign from his banking job and join Nollywood.
Ogunsin said, “It has been six glorious years post-banking. And has it been easy? No. But what I try to do consistently is step out of the stereotype. I’m not trying to be known as the albino actor. I’m the actor who is an albino. That’s a different thing.”
